After making such definitive World War II movies as Saving Private Ryan and Schindler's List, Steven Spielberg is set to focus on World War I. The Oscar-winning helmer will adapt Michael Morpurgo's novel War Horse for theaters.
The film will focus on a boy who is separated from his favorite horse during the conflict.
War Horse will be distributed by Disney and DreamWorks on August 10, 2011.
This decision obviously means that Spielberg's planned Abraham Lincoln biopic will take even longer to find its way to multiplexes.
